China has dared India again with another incursion in Ladakh. The Chinese Army has set up tents inside the Indian territory in Demchok in Ladakh.
Bharatiya Janata Party MP Thupstan Chhewang said that the Chinese Army has destroyed nomads' tents in the area and have tried to erect their tents. The incursion happened on Friday."It is a very serious issue, I am in touch with the sarpanch of the area," Chhewang said.
"It's important to see if they come and go and they stay in our territory. Right from the beginning we have faced problems of trespassing due to lack of a clearly marked border," said BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.
The Congress has hit out at the Modi government over the latest incursion. "It's unfortunate that since this government has come into power there have been many Chinese incursions, where is the coercive diplomacy? Where is the muscular diplomacy that they used to talk about," asked Congress leader Manish Tewari.
"The government should protest against this. Any such border related issue must be resolved immediately, and it should be ensured that nothing of the sort happens again in the future," said NCP leader Tariq Anwar.
Repeated incidents take place because of differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control. This incursion comes after Chinese President Xi Jinping told Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the BRICS summit in Brazil that his government was committed to solving the border dispute with India.
